I've always thought of them as Up with People on Pot and Patchouli. Their shows for me were like that long tired nauseous feeling of coming on to shrooms (from what I've "read") but without any payoff.

Oysterhead is a whole different beast....
Oz is ever floating.

I take it you like OHead? My musical kid tried to turn me on to them after I made him listen to CREAM for six hrs five yrs or so ago...good, but I don't think it "took" with me...

Hey huntr--hope this isn't a really stupid question: do I look for just "Panic" or "Widespread Panic"?

Well, it got Stewart Copeland back drumming and he's a monster. But I can take it or leave it; it's just that they can be a lot of fun live and I think it's the most interesting stuff Trey had done.

Les laughs at it all...

SC is right there in my top five (as you know, GBaker tops the list)...he really is something; folks here don't seem to talk much about him, but I agree: monster!

WT, The band "Masters of Reality" did at least one album with Ginger Baker on drums...one of my all time favorite albums.

bluedevil: good question.

according to wikipedia, it seems GB left the group and the lead singer went on to produce some other bands, most notably Queens of the Stone Age

thanks for that, SYW! had heard of them, but just barely...interesting. JBruce and GBaker did keep doing stuff post 60s, but somehow I never got the sense of them having real success, but could be all wet in that perception.

Saw him do an Animal Logic show years ago - him with Stanley Clarke on bass. It was bad ass.

He's super nice guy, btw. Very interesting family.

Yes, I have heard some of that...the older musically inclined kid in the folk band I mention now and again was a HUGE Police fan, and follows SC faithfully so I hear stuff now and again...I guess things didn't always work out with his brother the manager and Sting, but suppose that's to be expected (ie, Sting...the only guy I know that ever mentioned an eight hour erection as a good thing...or wait, do I have that wrong?).
